The last few days have been quite productive.I have been working on my crazy quilt, which got a little behind in the winter when I was ill.
ravelry 2015crochet-along. I have also done a 6" one.
On the journaling front, as well as my daily journal, I did these pages.
design matters TV with Laura Kemshall. I have not done it the same as Laura did, but the video reminded me of this method I saw on you tube a few years ago using ink.
This is a small thread painted/mixed media collage I put together with a few scraps of fabric, some papers and a card die cut. I like this one and as I was stitching, the name 'Into the darkness" came to me.
I had been thinking about a textile project for this year and had been thinking of doing the thread sketches (like the bird), but In April, I will be doing a class with Ro Bruhn at AQC. She makes beautiful fabric books. I also saw Leslie Tucker Jennison on Quilting Arts TV 1503 making similar collages and Liz Kettle also talked about thread sketching practice in qatv 1505. So this is a cross between all of the above, with a little bit of Cas Holmes thrown in so I think this will be my project for this year. A mixed media collage with fabric, paper and stitch, including thread sketches.
Often with these yearly projects I have planned to do it every day...and I always failed, simply because life happens, so this year my intent is to do at least 1 each week,with the intention of doing at least three.
One might think that, since I have failed at these yearly projects in the past, that I might give up, but although I have never been perfect (ie each and every day), I have learnt a great deal from these projects. I have a vast library of journal quilts, atcs and stitched squares
Whilst I was looking for all the links above, I found The Slow Stitching movement which has podcasts and a blog This looks like great reading and listening. Go have a look!
